What do you hang your RCA44 from?

Hello ,

Could someone point me towards the right solution for hanging my RCA44 upside down?

I see goosenecks on Ebay but are they strong enough or are they likely to break?

Ideas and suggestions welcome,

Thanks

Thanks for this link, looks like some serious mic stand!

I forgot to mention that I already have a big and sturdy enough stand, all I need is the swivel/holder to hang the mic from.

That's what I showed you in my previous post. It screws onto the boom and you can fine tune the angle. My big stands came with them but these are the same thing.

I think the Latch Lake I linked above is a better alternative. That picture however does not make it clear what it is and how it works. Here you go:





To Jeff R. (Latch Lake) - While the new site is beautiful (really), it is almost useless as far as letting a customer see what the product is and how each part works.

I just received four of those (and one of their dual-armed mic booms) and they are cool - so much more cooperative than the Atlas 'knuckles' they are replacing. I am going to get more so that all my big stands have them.

Ok, so I have one piece of hardware in common with The Bridge! I feel pro.

I assume they re strong enough for the weight of the RCA44?

How do you like the 02? (The dual-arm stand).

I like the double-arm stand quite a bit. It's a little alien looking but very cooperative. Nice on piano, stereo pairs that are coincident or near, and other dual uses.

Having used them a little bit more, I don't know if you'd be totally happy, fred, using the micro M1-R with RCA's. Even a U87 in a shockmount is at the edge of their slippage point, partially due to the leverage, if you try to do a horizontal arrangement... Though hanging, like your pics in post #9, they'd be fab.

Here's one of my 44s hanging from a T-O M1, with a T3 stand:



This works fine, but that is the furthest I could go with the extension on that stand. Any further and it's Starbird time.

Another way to hang your 44



Here we have an RCA 44BX hanging from the new Latch Lake micKing® 1100.

The stand is equipped with the standard two pound counterweight, and an optional Spin Grip® mic mount. The microphone is a full 3 feet from the mast of the stand. It also works at three feet with the boom fully horizontal. No Starbird required.

My daughter Abby is standing behind the stand. She runs the office here at Latch Lake.

Some of the new tooling for making the 1100 had to be modified, causing a delay.

We are now looking at a release date of September 1, 2014.
